Saturday the 24th of June will be a night to remember in Mauritius for fight fans as the WMC Mauritius Muaythai Championship will take place at the Gymnase Phoenix Sports Complex. Muaythai athletes from across the country will travel to take part in the event which is under the auspices of IFMA and the WMC.
The event features a stacked card of homegrown heroes with 6 WMC national titles on the line in this first-of-its-kind event in Mauritius which has big plans to host regular events with athletes from around the region.
Sham Seeratam the President of the Mauritius Muaythai Federation and Director of Operations for the African Muaythai Union stated that, “It is a major event for Mauritius Muaythai and combat sports in general as this paves the way for our athletes to build a career from the sport. The athletes will now be known on the world stage and thus opening doors for invitations to major titles worldwide. With the MOU signed between WMC and Rajadamnern Stadium, our next target is to get the national WMC champions to fight on the big stage which I believe is the best way to promote muaythai in the region.”
